Hi!

I just want to ask, how often do you change your puppets clothes? How many sets of clothes does your figure have? When you have a theme party does your puppet also wears the same clothes it usually wears or not?

Thanks!

If I can change to match a theme or season, like Christmas or Halloween, then I change Sally Ann's outfit. Otherwise, not that often.

As the mood strikes, as it were.

And/or the normal range one might expect to pay for having a customized suit (ie. miniature tux/or black suit), for a 30" wood vent figure, sewn up by a local seamstress (not including the shoes.

My wonderful & Nearly Normal Mother - In -Law, makes vest for me and Nigel.

They are an easy way to make seasonal changes...Hearts for Valentines day, green for St. Patricks...Yellow and Purple for Easter....

Mother Ruth makes one for me, Nigel and a 12 inch version of Nigel.

Be safe, well and well dressed.

My dummy Lou wears jumpers and a shirt...but I have a sports/athlete jacket and pants for him...if I'm performing for the same crowd, I just let him wear the sports jacket and pants.

... hoping I could have a Tux for him soon

I like the idea of having several bodies with a different costume on each. Then he can wear a different outfit for different occasions.

BTW, I noticed that K-Mart is selling Halloween costumes for 40% off today around here. Should be able to get some good deals on some specialty or profession type outfits.

A few years ago, my kids bought me a tuxedo with tails for my vent figure... a perfect size match too. They paid $4 for it at the Goodwill. Always look for deals on clothes.

And in another old thread revival....

I'm one of those who almost never changes the figures outfits, except maybe at the beginning when I'm zeroing in on just the right outfit for a particular figure.
If I want to do something for a holiday, I keep it simple like putting a Santa hat on them for Christmas.
If I were going to do regular outfit changes for my figures, I would definitely be going the route of making (or buying) extra bodies for them.

Dan takes a normal child T3, I take him into the store, just as if he is a child and work with a sales person to find clothes that match and fit him.

With his current outfit the clothing is loose fitting and cutting the back out for access to the controls has not been necessary

I can purchase additional bodies for fast wardrobe changes; in the near future, as I l know the overall future direction with Dan I will make decisions about additional outfits.

As for now he is dressed well and I am concentrating on a constructing a routine and practicing movements and body language with him.

I once changed the clothes of one of my puppets from a tutu and ballerina shoes into boots, overalls and a neckerchief - effectively changing the sex of the puppet as well. We got along much better after that too! The clothes DO make the puppet in many occasions!

I have on hand what I call a "utility player" puppet. In baseball a utility player can run, pitch, throw, and play just about any position. That's what this puppet is for..to be the guy that I can use to do just about anything. Originally the puppet was made (this is a soft puppet made by MAT puppets..) as a sea captain, but at some later point he was sent back to MAT and made into a knight, a detective, and can be used and reclothed to become what I want. His face, while pleasing, is nondescript. A friendly face that can be just about anything. And he has played that part for me, especially in my library shows. It saves money, and the new costuming can completely change the way the character is perceived. Oh, I may also at some point, also change his hair color or style..but it still has the same face. Recycling puppets is not a bad thing! Smile
